Lincoln Park, Los Angeles, CA a bit of history of Los Angeles!
Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)
Lincoln Park, Los Angeles, CA a bit of history of Los Angeles, CA!Most people think Los Angeles is all bout "new" and has been barely around. Well let me dispell this myth. I have been going to a Tile place in Alhambra... (blog food for a later time)On my way home I kept driving by this park. I was amazed at the beautiful sculptures and neat layout...needless to say I was busy or on the phone so I could not focus on it.Well today I managed to take somepicutures and I was able to realize what I discovered. Lincoln Park!So let's get back to Lincoln Park. The park is located at the intersection of Valley Boulevard and Mission Road. It so happens that is is one of Los Angeles's first parks. It was created by the City of Los Angeles in 1881 from land donated by John S Griffin.It was originally called East Los Angeles Park, then  it was calle Eastlake Park in 1901 and finally in 1917 it was renamed Lincoln Park. How about that, and here we are in 2015 and it is still called Lincoln Park.I can hardly wait to go back to find a parking space and stroll around the park and get a closer look instead of just driving by and taking some photos. The park is close to Downtown if you are driving:)So hopefully in the near future you will see another post, in the mean time enjoy the pictures. If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, Venice or Malibu, feel free to contact me at me at 310.486.1002 (m) or homes@endrebarath.com or visit one of my websites at http://www.endrebarath.com.  I am a pet friendly realtor and I contribute a portion of my commission to local animal rescue organizations.

All my clients know I do not work this weekend. Will take calls and send a few emails as time permits between book signings and book discussion panels.Funny part is every year it is one of the hotest weekends, so you can imagine lugging hard cover books from one book signing to another translates to real work:)).  Needless to say, the Mystery Sections, the Cooking Pannels and of course the Bargain book sections have reservations for me:). Ironically so are the rare and collectibles as well. So hope we can have some discipline and not go crazy on buying books!!! OK as you can see this looks like fun Avocado & Crabmeat and a few other items:)) clearly I will have to make this dish:)) So if you want to have fun and learn about books this is the place USC this weekend!http://events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, Venice or Malibu, feel free to contact me at me at 310.486.1002 (m) or homes@endrebarath.com or visit one of my websites athttp://www.endrebarath.com.  I am a pet friendly realtor and I contribute a portion of my commission to local animal rescue organizations.

Downtown Los Angeles: Sold Properties by Month Market Report is...
Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)
Downtown Los Angeles: Sold Properties by Month Market Report is down by 6%! Posted on Mar 9, 2015 by Endre Barath in Downtown Los Angeles The Downtown Los Angeles : Sold Properties by Month Market Report is down by 6% ! On  closer analysis we discover that this is so insignificant in the big picture because in February 3014 there were 34 sales and in February 2015 there were 32 sales which is a small change of -2 which translates to the 6% decrease of the numbers. It is important to look at the numbers not just the per cent headlines or as some people would call the sound bites. Every time I go downtown to show properties I see the positive and vibrant changes. There is life not just in the day time but at night as well. People are walking to restaurants and others are walking their dogs, clearly a sign of a community that did not exist fifteen years ago. If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, Venice or Malibu, feel free to contact me at 310.486.1002(m) or homes@endrebarath.com or visit one of my websites  at  http://www.endrebarath.com.  I am a pet friendly realtor and I contribute a portion of my commission to local animal rescue organizations.

Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)
Downtown Los Angeles: New Properties by Month are up by 32%! Posted on Mar 9, 2015 by Endre Barath in Downtown Los Angeles The Downtown Los Angeles; New Properties by Month are up by 32%! This is quite incredible. The Demand is there and the inventory is increasing. Clearly there is still a lack of inventory in all price points, but the good news is that it is better than it was in February 2014 because there has been a 32 per cent increase in the inventory. As most of you have seen I have been writing Posts how Vibrant the Downtown Landscape has become. Fantastic Restaurants walking distance from your condominiums are truly  valuable. One can walk to the Staples Center where you could watch two local Basket Ball Teams when they are in town and the list is endless.

Downtown Los Angeles Views: Life of an Urban Dweller!
Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)
Downtown Los Angeles Views: life of an Urban Dweller! Posted on Mar 8, 2015 by Endre Barath in Downtown Los Angeles When we represent buyers in Downtown Los Angeles, the focus is basically on three things. One what are the amenities that they get for  the Home Owner Dues i.e.: is there a roof top pool or an indoor pool or a pool on the grounds?  The second focus is on  the question is there a Gym to work out i.e.: how state of the art is the workout room? Then lastly and most importantly what are the views like? The best part is since it is Downtown, there are virtually no bad views. Clearly everyone knows that the “walk score” is perfect. After all you can walk to the Restaurants and Staples Center from virtually all Condominium Buildings. Parking could be an issue because some of these Condominiums were converted  commercial buildings. So what are your questions that you would like to know and want in your Downtown Condominium? Let me know and I will try to find our for you. If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, Venice or Malibu, feel free to contact me at 310.486.1002310.486.1002(m) or homes@endrebarath.com or visit one of my websites  at  http://www.endrebarath.com.  I am a pet friendly realtor and I contribute a portion of my commission to local animal rescue organizations.

Check out the Vibrant Colors of Downtown Los Angeles!
Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)
Check out the Vibrant Colors of Downtown Los Angeles. Posted on Mar 8, 2015 by Endre Barath in Downtown Los Angeles Downtown Los Angeles has turned into a very Vibrant Downtown. I still remember 17+ years ago when at night it turned into a Ghost town… in some respects it reminded me of  Providence Rhode Island. At night the city would become a ghost town…anyway that was twenty plus years ago. Now when I drive around Downtown Los Angeles all I see is vibrant colors. These photos are of a building let me know what you think? Interestingly two to three blocks from here it is still a very sad area to see. Today you can not find a one bedroom Condominium under $375,000.00 what a change in ten plus years. Funny I told Diane fifteen years ago we should buy a Condominium Downtown, she looked at me like I had two heads. Just on a side note in those days you could buy a large luxury Condominium under Four Hundred Thousand Dollars that is now going for around $850,000. go figure what do I know I am just a Realtor who sees the trends. Now if you are looking for good advice and are open to take it, please reach out to me directly. Either way please enjoy the pictures! If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, Venice or Malibu, feel free to contact me at 310.486.1002(m) or homes@endrebarath.com or visit one of my websites  at  http://www.endrebarath.com.  I am a pet friendly realtor and I contribute a portion of my commission to local animal rescue organizations.

The Beverly Hills Berkshire Hathaway Contest Reception was at the EVO

Beverly Hills Berkshire Hathaway Contest Reception at the EVO Posted on Jan 19, 2015 by Endre Barath in Downtown Los Angeles The Beverly Hills Berkshire Hathaway office had a listing contest during the summer. The Winners of our 2014 Summer Listing Contest were treated to a Reception. My manager did this in our honor at the 1155 S Grand Ave, LA CA 90015. Keep in mind that there were cocktails, hors-d’ oeuvres and a Private DJ. The best part was there were some spectacular Views and most importantly we were able to mingle with our peers at this event. The EVO is a hip cool downtown high rise building. If you have not been downtown in many years you would not recognize it. Boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants are sprinkled all over. The unit was a North West facing Penthouse of approximately 3900 square feet. The last of the units that are still available. Once this one is gone the building will be sold out. So to all those doubters and nay Sayers that this was a bad concept to put the units on the market in 2008. Sorry to disappoint you but it was a brilliant idea. In case you are wondering there is a concierge at the entrance parking, is self-parking and the good news is the Home Owner Dues are only $850 per month virtually unheard for this type of building. Check out the enclosed link to get a better feel for this fantastic Penthouse Unit. On a side note the link still shows two available, not the case the smaller one is in Escrow. http://www.evo-south.com/     if you are wondering the asking price is only $3.4million truly a good value for downtown Penthouses. Now clearly eight or nine years ago people did not realize what a vibrant downtown it would turn out to be. I remember seventeen years ago I went to a commercial breakfast for Realtors and Tim Leiweke of AEG said they were going to build the Staples Center and totally revamp downtown Los Angeles. There were a lot of skeptics in the room. Just to give you an idea the land in those days was selling for around $1 per square foot and very few people considered “downtown” as safe or an option to buy not alone live there. Now you cannot even find a 600 sq. foot one bedroom or single Condominium under $350,000. In those days they were selling one to two bedroom Condominiums for $50,000 to $75,000. If you are considering buying or selling a home, a luxury home, luxury investment real estate, luxury vacation homes, or luxury beach properties in Southern California, Los Angeles, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, Venice or Malibu, feel free to contact me at 310.486.1002 or homes@endrebarath.com or visit one of my websites  at     http://www.endrebarath.com. I am a pet friendly realtor and I contribute a portion of my commissions to local animal rescue organizations.
